I hate the winter. But this is my favorite week of the year. Eight months ahead of baseball! And being a Mets fanatic this year promises to be extra fun! Here's some ballpark shots I've taken through the years to get everyone dreaming about spending a day at the ballpark on a warm summer day. Shea Stadium with the new stadium going up in the outfield parking lot.. Citi Field being built Progress! My childhood memories slowly vanishing. Citi Field, NY Citizens Bank Park, Philly. The stadium is nice. The fans are trash. PNC Park, Pittsburgh. A very pretty town. Who knew? Nationals Park, Washington DC Fenway Park, Boston. A genuine baseball cathedral. After a 9th inning comeback NY'ers celebrate! 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field In November 2013 my best friend, who I had been going to games with for 30+ years, suddenly passed away from a heart attack. I haven't been to a game since, I wasn't "ready". I think this year I will go back, reflect, and honor the 2015 National League Champs!
